Melbourne's red-hot attack could be strengthened further by the return of fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen with coach Craig Bellamy saying he's fit to play in Sunday's clash with St George Illawarra.
Papenhuyzen hasn't played since round six and was named in the reserves for the NRL's Magic Round following an AC joint injury earlier in the season.
But Bellamy is confident the star fullback could be a late inclusion in the 17 for Sunday's match.
"We sort of picked out this week for him to be quite honest, but we're always aware that it's not cut and dry how long it takes individuals to get over certain injuries," Bellamy said on Saturday.
"I couldn't see any problems with him playing.
"He's trained really well all week and hopefully he'll line up for us."
While Dragons coach Anthony Griffin has been quietly pleased with his side's defence, he knows they'll need more against a Melbourne side that's been "running wild".
The Storm terrorised South Sydney last week in a 50-0 win, Josh Addo-Carr scoring six tries.
That followed 40-14 and 42-20 defeats of Cronulla and the Warriors respectively, Melbourne managing 40 points or more in five of their past six games.
"I'd say (they're the best attacking team) at the moment," Griffin, whose Dragons are 5-4, said.
"They are lethal - Penrith are really good defensively and they have a great attacking game at the moment - but the Storm have been running wild the last few weeks.
"Last week we were pretty clean, we didn't let in a line break. Even though the previous month we didn't get the results, we've been pretty sound there (in defence)."
Brandon Smith's suspended while Harry Grant (hamstring) and Cameron Munster (foot) are injured, so Ryley Jacks moves will play five-eighth and Kenny Bromwich hooker as a result.
Zac Lomax (thumb) remains out for the Dragons but Mikaele Ravalawa returns from suspension and fellow winger Cody Ramsey (rib) trained on Friday and is still a chance to return after being named in the reserves.
The Dragons have scored 30 points or more in three of their last four games against the Storm.
"Any time you play the Storm it's a massive challenge; it doesn't matter who they have in their team," Griffin said.
"People thought when they lost (Cameron) Smith and (Cooper) Cronk it would make them easier to beat but they have been a top-four premiership team for 10 years now.
"We've got a few out ourselves ... had to chop and change our team so it just comes down to our team and performance because the Storm are going to be the Storm."
